overview Dr. Virmani completed his medical training at UT Southwestern Medical School in Dallas where he was in the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) receiving a combined M.D/Ph.D degree. His research in basic neuroscience explored the physiologic mechanisms by which neurons in the brain communicate with one other using chemical neurotransmitters at the synapse. He then went on to pursue a residency in Neurology at Washington University in St. Louis where he developed an interest in Movement Disorders. This lead to a two year combined clinical-research fellowship in Movement Disorders under the guidance of Dr. Stanley Fahn and other members of the Center for Parkinson Disease and other Movement Disorders at Columbia University Medical Center in New York. While at Columbia University, Dr. Virmani became interested in the principles underlying the phenomenon of freezing of gait in Parkinson disease and he undertook a clinicopathologic study under the mentorship of Dr. Fahn and Dr. Jean-Paul Vonsattel (Department of Pathology). He also worked with Dr. Fahn to start a clinical trial using a novel motor-neuronotrophic factor for potential neuroprotection in Parkinson disease. This trial is currently underway. In addition to his clinical duties as the Director of the Movement Disorders program at UAMS, Dr. Virmani plans to continue to develop his research interests with the establishment of a gait lab and eventual participation in national clinical research trials.
